Friday Inspiration:A Prayer to Remind You of Your Worth By Julie Sunne

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” – Psalm 139:14

For years, I had secretly thought that if I accomplished enough I’d be accepted and worthy. Each day I spent trying to please others by earning enough money, making a name for myself and providing for every need that crossed my path.

I believed I should be the greatest mom, the perfect wife, the best friend, the hardest worker, the one who had all the answers and cared enough to respond to everyone’s requests. I bought into the lie that success equals validation.

It was beginning to strangle me. Then the thought snuck in that my worth isn’t something to be found or earned, but it’s innate because of who God created me to be.

Each of us is created in the image of God — remarkably and wonderfully made. We don’t need to prove ourselves or earn our worth. And as today’s key verse reminds us, God’s works are wonderful. We already have worth in our Creator and Redeemer. That realization alone should give us peace as we live out who we are freely in Christ.

Who are you trying to prove your worth to? Today, embrace the truth that in Christ you are already worthy.

Prayer:

Dear Lord, Thank You for fearfully and wonderfully creating each of us. Thank You for giving us worth in Your eyes. Help us live as the one You uniquely intended us to be. Help us abide instead of strive, living peacefully and joyfully as heirs to Your Kingdom and co-heirs with Christ. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Thank You, God for this day

Thank You for everything in this day

Thank You for establishing my thoughts

And directing my steps

Thank You for giving me the strength to forgive

And not hold anything against anybody

Thank You for giving me the strength to let go

And allow You to be in control

Bless everyone I come in contact with

Bless everyone in my heart

Bless those that love me

Bless those that hate me

Give peace to all in body, mind, spirit and heart

I pray that Your will be done today

I pray that You be glorified today

Fill us with all the fullness of You

Give us the strength to be of good courage

Let us be strong in You

Let us be strong in faith

Give us the strength to believe that we have already received what we are asking of You

No doubt, no fear, no anxiety

Give us the strength to trust You

In Jesus’ mighty name

Amen
